St Joseph’s Primary School students have spent the week losing themselves in the world of art.

The youngsters tried everything from painting, pottery, clay, dance and printing as part of Arts Week, which is designed to showcase a range of mediums. 

Art co-ordinator Kathy McMeel said the children loved the biannual event and the school walls were adorned with the colourful works they produced. 

Children were exposed to the different art forms including performance and visual arts and media with visiting artists teaching them new skills.

This year’s theme was ‘lose yourself’, which was Alice in Wonderland inspired. 

Guests included special effects animation specialist Richard Pritchard and visiting musician Jon Madin, who taught the children to play the marimba. Some of these skills were showcased at a talent show on Friday.

Mrs McMeel said the school looked amazing and works would be displayed in the foyer for a week.
